Remember those Dell commercials with the idiot who kept popping up shouting, “Dude, you got a Dell!”? Well, today I’d like to introduce independent filmmakers to a new expression that will likely become equally annoying: “Dude, you got Netflix’ed!” — but before you go thinking that’s a good thing, read on.
